be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward. the question of the number came out of the household survey, 800,000 plus number, there is a lot of margin for error, possibly as much as 400,000. that is admitted by folks within the labor department, as well. i think you can't get too hung up on the overall numbers because typically these are revised upward or downward. that tends to happen a month later when we stop paying attention. >> heather: what will the numbers do in terms of swaying voters' opinions, specifically undecided voter? do you expect to see a change in the polls as a result of this? >> it's a tough question. i generally think the jobs reports do not move as much of opinion of voting public with the amount of noise in the d.c. bubble so to speak. with all the rest

? why then put in this conspiracy somehow that the books were cooked? if the obama administration cooked the books, certainly the bush administration would have done so in those terrible years when the economy turned, or if someone in the administration has that kind of power. >> yeah. i actually agree 100% with mr. harwood and with tony whose tweet you quoted. you don't have to attack the integrity of the number to attack the substance of the numbers. 114,000 new jobs is nothing to celebrate. it takes 150,000 new jobs every month to absorb new work into the work force. we have 3.4 college graduates this year that need to find jobs and need 150,000 jobs to stosh them and the other people entering the work force. back in 2004 barack obama attacked president bush for a jobs report where 300,000 jobs were created, three times today's jobs. we're celebrating this today, and i think it's unwise. it shows that the expectations are much lower. we have a much lower bar to define success, and i don't think that's good for anyone. i don't think that's good for the american economy or any one of us
, deliberately distorted to make president obama look good before the election. the obama administration firing back calling such charges ludicrous. what is the real story? joining me now, former white house chief economist and labor department commissioner keith hall, moody's chief economist, john lonski, and carried from call bomb capital management. welcome to you all. very curious. nearly a half percent move in the an employment rate on just 114,000 jobs growth in the month surprising to jack welch, former ceo of ge. here is what he said. >> well, and the last two months we have gone from 83-81. now we are going to 7.8% by changing the numbers assumptions. like. i don't know if -- what the right number is. i tell you, these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. gerri: gary, to you first. is the bls giving as ps? >> it is the bs. look. three months ago i said that even if we got newt we would be under 8% because the politics of it. we saw 30 days ago the fed announced a open ended printing of money to get asset prices up, and they say 50 days before e
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe

question is, is there any answer from the obama administration. >> reporter: they are tackling this head on. they say this is all about politics. ofa does not accept donations from foreign nat nations or any ineligible individual. and the campaign voluntarily goes above and beyond federal election commitments to insure the integrity of fundraising efforts. they request proof of current and a valid u.s. passport. they say it's in order to comply with all federal election laws. martha,. martha: certainly at order odds with that report. thank you very much. bill: fox news alert right now. because there is new evidence we can report that the white house knew the attack on your consulate in benghazi was the work of terrorists long before admitting it to the american people. fox news learning that a top aid to the secretary of state hillary clinton, patrick kennedy is his name briefed congressional aids the day after the attack, september 12th calling it sophisticated and complex. u.s. ambassador chris stevens among four americans killed in the attack on 9/11. a hearing on what happened in bengha

of the past four years in the obama administration is how much policy has been driven from the white house. some presidents at least give lip service to cabinet government and empowering their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious, one, in a second obama term was a continuation of the pattern, and with romney how do you think he would run things in terms of the relationship between the department and the white house? governor. >> i think we've strayed some distance from constitutional government in the sense the white house staff has been built up with layers of folks who kind of cushion the president from the departments and agencies. so i compare and contrast just by being a low-level staffer under reagan on the advanced staff, and seen that the universe of high profile cabinet members who interacted at least from what i can see, more directly with the president. and now we have layers that kind of cushion the president, a deputy chief of staff for policy or whatever the case might be. and i think we're drifting farther and farther away from that

be a difference with the bush administration. now, barack obama had said that all we're doing in afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. and such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause. that's not what we're doing there. we're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. there will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in afghanistan, also. >> senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about afghanistan. >> i'll talk about both. with afghanistan, facts matter, gwen. the fact is that our commanding general in afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in afghanistan said the surge principle in iraq will not work in afghanistan, not joe biden, our commanding general in afghanistan. he said we need more troops. we need government-building. we need to spend more money on the infrastructure in afghanistan. look,
's wrong with the entire obama administration, they have a lack of ambition for this country and what it can and should do. but i would also say if he believes that, that tim geithner believes that a public sector job is equivalent to a private sector job. it's not that public sector jobs aren't important. teachers are important, firemen are important, nurses are important. but a public sector job doesn't pay for itself. taxpayers pay for it. a public sector job doesn't create other jobs. a private sector job pays for itself and creates other jobs. i frankly found his statement shocking. both because of its lack of ambition and because of its misunderstanding of what actually drives growth. it's not public sector jobs. >> let me ask you this, under reagan's recovery, were we laying off teachers and firefighters? were state governments laying off teachers and firefighters at this rate? >> no. absolutely not. >> well, that's part of the recovery. our unemployment is where we are right now if republican governors weren't slashing teach eshs and slashing first responders. >> that's a circ
critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advisers. he has continued to emphasize that and to say that vladimir putin will get nothing from me. barack obama has emphasized as one of his major foreign-policy accomplishments a reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, whether it is sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a much more significant issue as there have been problems with pakistan that made it difficult for us to get in and out, or having a new nuclear arms limitation agreement with russia. so that's a substantive difference. there are others as well. when it comes to some of the core middle east issues, how to st
that point in the press release. they did the math, okay? and here's the math that the obama administration has done. they found a way to make up $4 trillion of their $5 trillion number, and they conclude, there's a missing $1 trillion. not $5 trillion. $1 trillion. all right. so they've got the math all laid out here. i'm looking at the e-mail myself. if we take those numbers at f e facel value, it still doesn't match their rhetoric on the campaign trail this week. in fact, here's the president and his campaign's press secretary, both today. >> the centerpiece of governor romney's economic plan is a new $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthiest americans. >> the fact is that mitt romney's got $5 trillion tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires that he would make seniors and the middle class pay for. >> well, the voice you just heard there, ben le bolt. "outfront" tonight, you're going to talk to ben. he is obama's campaign press secretary. ben, good to talk to you. this $5 trillion number. obviously, you've gone through the math, as your campaign gets it in terms of how you get to
the obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath of the attack to fit a convenient storyline that it was spontaneous and not premeditated terrorism. >> i argue the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video, escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on tv in pakistan with u.s. taxpayer dollars. >> reporter: rogers, who told fox one day after the attack that it was, indeed, terrorism, saying the statement from the director of national intelligence on friday appeared to be an effort to obscure the facts. >> part of the problem is this circling of the wagons that is really concerning about this. again, americans need to understand the truth, and the facts are what the facts are. and the intelligence is what the intelligence is. >> reporter: fox news asked an administration official why it chose ambassador rice to discuss the sensitive intelligence details on five sunday talk shows over current career intelligence officials including adviser john brennan, national security adviser donilon, james clap
optimistic about where we're going. and another very important point for the obama administration. >> so, john, maria is right in part because it has taken away an important talking point from the romney campaign. he can no longer say the president promised to get the unemployment rate under 8%, now at 7.8%. we have one more jobs report to go so who knows. what can mitt romney do to -- for lack of a better term, spin the numbers. >> well, i think people see this and say is that really the best we can do. i think everybody is happy when we see any movement. but, let's face it, unemployment is right under 8%. we aren't seeing -- i believe 500,000 jobs in this report were part time workers. people want jobs and they want even more than jobs they want careers and they want hope. right now they don't see that. they see a president is doing nothing about jobs going overseas, they see a president who adds a small business tax at the time they can least afford it, they see college graduates, half of them coming out and can't find the jobs they want based upon the degrees that they have. and so i
to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of united states of using a government program to manipulate people do not get a job, to be dependent on the government for services? impressed. we are a few minutes and -- >> let me finish. pressed we're a few minutes and and you have now three times call me crazy on observing that the president has expanded government dependency. >> you are saying he is manipulating american civil democratic. -- so they will vote democratic. >> let's talk about the issue of benefits. in 1960, 20% -- of federal spending went to individual spent -- payments. this year, 65% of federal spending goes to individual payments. i would suggest we do have a problem with government -- >> we had a downturn in the economy. we of hard times, p
in a second obama administration. he is very much looking forward to this. >> you have been pressing the romney campaign for specifics, today we got one specifics suggesting maybe there would be a cap on deductio at $17,000 for mortgage interest deductions, charitable contributions, that's a pretty specific number, what do you think about that? >> i think that the net result is still the same. that is specific, but he has not told us how he will do that without raising taxes on the middle class. even if you're capping deductions, separating them into different buckets with different caps on them. you're still raising taxes on the middle class. even his own economists that he relies on says you can't cut taxes by $5 trillion out paying for it by cutting deductions for people making $200,000 and less. that's just a fact. you can't do it. even if you close every single deduction for people making over $200,000, or $250,000 for families, you're still a trillion short. so he has to tell us how he will do this without increasing taxes on the middle class. so far the math does not add up. >

the problems for the middle class and that the obama administration has started to pull it out by its boot straps. and so the obama campaign just in case we didn't get that has a statement that says that the romney campaign is taking this entirely out of context. it's obviously in looking at the full transcript that joe biden was talking about the fact that the middle class was buried under failed bush policies. and of course they say romney/ryan would change all that. however, this is an opportunity, which the romney campaign is taking to say, you know what, we agree with you. the middle class has been buried and we're going to change that. imagine this as kind of the dry season in the west in the summer. and any match or any lightning strike is going to start a huge fire. and that's what's going on here the closer we get to the election. >> this is coming a day before the debate. how detrimental could this be for the obama campaign? >> i'm sure the obama campaign is thinking this is a headache they don't need. as you know in the past joe biden has given them a bunch of headaches. they li

is about a critique of the obama administration. that is a common topic of calendars. the critiques of the president public foreign policy. there are differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are subsequent. much to the surprise, even some of his own advisers at the time, but rather than backing away from he has continued to emphasize that and say basically that he has emphasize -- emphasize that descending supplies into afghanistan, which has become a significant issue. we're example, >> that is a serious difference. there are others as well. for example, how to stop iran from producing a nuclear weapon. it is not entirely clear. it is pretty hard to tell. >> host: good morning. we have a caller joining us. >> caller: how are you doing? thank you. i definitely agree with the lady talking about the foreign-policy issues. because i think that mitt romney is an opportunist. benjamin netanyahu on foreign policy, obama is actually steadfast -- you know, you talk to benjamin netanyahu on the phone for hours, so it's not like he has been dodging them. he

years under the obama administration. so, before we chat, mr. stein, i do need to play this follow-up clip, the vice president, you know, coming back and explaining his comment. this was later in asheville. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and that ryan supported. as bill clinton, all they're suggesting now when asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. that's what this is. >> on the flip side, ben, you have the mitt romney secretly taped comments, the 47%, what does he do? what does he need to do to overcome this perception, he's this rich guy out to help the rich? >> first of all, we had lots of very rich presidents who have been helpful. fdr was one of the richest men in the country. his family ate off gold plates. john f. kennedy was one of the very richest people in america. he was a very fine president. the fact that lbj was fantastically rich, a fine president. the fact that they're rich doesn't mean they're bad presidents. not in the slightest. i think mr. romney ha
think mitt romney is looking very good. that's why the obama administration didn't want to run against mitt romney. he was clearly the most threatening of the republican candidates. i think he's the strongest candidate against obama. it's very hard to take out an incumbent. it's only happened at least republicans have only done it one time before in the last 100 years. when reagan beat carter. i guess isn't last time it's happened, when clinton took out bush. so it's curious, for example, that there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night. the highest it's been since 1992, last time an incumbent was taken out. and i think that's because people are uncomfortable with obama. but if they're not political nuts, like we are, they haven't been paying attention, haven't been watching all of the debates. and they just want to see who the challenger is and whether they're comfortable with him. and i think after wednesday night, everybody's pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> you were early. looking back i was reading back on your twitter feed last night and even back in febru

by the the obama administration. >>> imagine being 23 miles above the ground and then jumping. that's exactly what one extreme skydiver plans to do today at 120,000 feet, 82 1/2 empire state buildings stacked on top of one another. problem now is the weather a. strong winds are delaying the event. you're looking at a live picture from the launch site in new mexico. if everything goes to plan, baumgartner will begin the first person to break the sound bear aier witho a -- barrier without the aid of a vehicle. back in april i got a chance to ask him about that special suit he will wear for this moment. >> if you want to go up to an altitude of 120,000 feet you need to have a pressurized suit. reason why, if you cross the line, about 60,000 feet high, water in your blood starts boiling and the pressure suit keeps the pressure with you and it's not going to happen to you. but also at the same time it's very limiting. you have a lack of movement. it's hard to exit the capsule in the suit. that will require a lot of practicing. that's what i did in the past. >> we hope it worked. joining us live from ro
that the proof of the failure of the economic policies of the obama administration was in the fact that 50% of graduates cannot get jobs, that one in six americans are living in poverty. >> arianna, i thought all of those statistics were very compelling because they fit into the narrative that he had painted. and the narrative was that we could do better. this is not acceptable what obama has laid out or done in the last four years and there was an optimism to romney which could date nobody has really seen. the third part is something that i refer to as the bedroom test. it's also the kitchen and the living room. who do i want in my bedroom at nighttime or first thing in the morning for the next four years or the next eight years, and the answer was after last night, at least, that i'm comfortable with mitt romney. he's smart. he's in command of the facts. he knows what he wants to do, and he can be in charge. i think there was a comfort factor last night a lot of people had not seen. arianna said it, it's the old mitt romney or maybe it was john harwood, it was the one that everybody who
. as yet what are the noteworthy aspects of the last four years in the obama administration how much policy has been driven from the white house? some presidents give lip service to the cabinet government and in power and their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious to get a second obama term what we see the continuation of the pattern in which romney, how do you think that he would write things in terms of the relationship in the department and the white house? >> i think we have strayed some distance from the government in the sense that the white house staff has been built up with the lawyers of folks that had to cushion the president from the departments and agencies. sallai compare and contrast just be kind of low-level staffer under ronald reagan on the advanced staff and seeing the universe of high-profile kavanagh members who interjected at least from what i could see more directly with the president and now we have lawyers that kind of cushion the president and the deputy chief of staff of policy or whatever the case might be. and i think tha
own. the curious position taken by the obama administration. in particular, the view that the statutes should allow for liability in some foreign cases, but not work is a corporation in one country being sued in another. it did not seem like the argument had any fans of the court yesterday, but i am curious if the panelists have talked about whether that is an intermediate position. whether the court might see that as a way out of this. whether jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his -- wide jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. -- whether john can explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. >> it is so difficult to be a government official. you have to represent all of these competing interests. yes, you want to provide lawsuits that combine the -- provide accountability for bad human rights abuses. you want to uphold international law and prevent abusive reciprocal actions. in the first round of briefing, the administration filed a brief which people applauded. yes, corporations can be held liable for violations of internationa
